Operator condition detection solutions

Utilizing in-cab sensors and detection equipment, OpGuard is a real-time non-intrusive fatigue and distraction detection solution that continuously monitors operators to proactively prevents accidents.

Daily Fatigue Reports: This report shows the number of events detected by OpGuard by day. User-defined categorization defines the events as acceptable, moderate, critical, distraction, or cell phone use.
Shift Fatigue Reports: Allows supervisors to easily identify number fatigue or distracted driving events by shift. This information can be used to implement programs designed to reduce fatigue during the most critical shifts.
Hour Fatigue Reports: Allows supervisors to easily identify the number fatigue events related to the hour of the day. This information can be used to implement programs designed to reduce fatigue during the most critical hours.
Employee Fatigue Reports: Allows supervisors to track fatigue and distracted driving events by employee by shift.
Equipment Report: Track fatigue and distracted driving events by equipment.
Map View: Supervisors can quickly identify fatigue and distracted driving events by employee on map. This information can be used to make improvements to stretches of roads that have the highest number of fatigue events.

Operators are monitored in real-time, allowing them to have immediate notification when a fatigue or distraction event occurs.
